The All or Nothing draw game, which provides a top prize of $250,000 to someone who matches either all or none of the winning numbers, will end on Thursday, June 30th.
The lottery’s decision to remove the game resulted from its performance. The lottery’s portfolio of draw games will then consist of the multi-state jackpot games Powerball and Mega Millions, the North Carolina games – Carolina Pick 3, Carolina Pick 4, and Carolina Cash 5, and the new multi-state game Lucky For Life, which provides a top prize of $1,000 a day, every day, for all of a winner’s life.
We understand that some folks enjoy playing All or Nothing. And we’ve glad we’ve had six top prize winners of $250,000. We continuously evaluate our games and products to make sure that North Carolina lottery players have games that they enjoy playing and to offer the best games available.
The ending of the game means that a step-down will begin Friday, June 17, for those who choose to buy multi-draw tickets. Only 27 advance plays will be available after the day drawing on June 17. The number remaining will decline by one drawing after each drawing that follows.
Players who win prizes in the last drawing on the evening of Thursday, June 30th will have 180 days to claim them. We’d love to see some more top prize winners between now and then.
The NCEL should stop hoarding all of the "rights to games of chance" and use some of the "tens of billions of dollars lost by lottery players", to build a Casino or two. Provide North Carolinians with a couple of places to be social. By the way, we're all in this together, so, WE THE PEOPLE should have a say in "the goings on."
